Give me Jesus.

September 24, 2009

As I get older, simple things are so much more meaningful.  Minus the glitz, minus the lights, minus the bells and whistles, minus the elaborate packaging, minus the “much ado about nothing.”  Simple joys.  Simple truths.  Simple promises.  A single Treasure.  Things (Persons) that are precious and speak for themselves.  They don’t require the “much ado.”

I currently have this Jeremy Camp song on repeat.  Simple lyrics.  Simple longing, but deep — permeating.  Love it … now to live it.

In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
Give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus.
You can have all this world,
Just give me Jesus.

When I am alone,
When I am alone,
When I am alone,
Give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus.
You can have all this world,
Just give me Jesus.

When I come to die,
When I come to die,
When I come to die,
Give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus.
You can have all this world,
Just give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus.
Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus.
You can have all this world,
You can have all this world,
You can have all this world,
Just give me Jesus.
